Remember the original Titan, Andre the Giant? This design is a wonderful callback to the original Fairey “Obey” design. The Titan’s face is large and close up. It’s rendered in solid outlines, in a grayscale color palette. The bold red box stands out on the gray head. The design is squarely contained in a large tall rectangle demanding to by obeyed.

“You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.” Okay, this isn’t a mash up with The Matrix but the reference still seemed appropriate because the red in this design really pops! This dream like design features a sweet large white bunny, with a big soft round eye. The gentleman rabbit wears a detailed fabric garment complete with a pocket watch. The white roses seem to drip with red paint. Meanwhile, the interesting winding thorny tendrils pull you in.

Looks like I can finally pick a Doctor Who shirt without having to talk about a Doctor Who shirt! This handsome design is actually a reference to a Doctor Who parody from the tv show, Community. I enjoy the star-space texture on the figure’s suit. The design contains nice, fine outlines around the space texture and gears to create a deco style background. The tall, serif letter forms fit nicely with the design. The blue and gold tones make this design stand out.

Looks like Logan is about to head back in time to save us all, 88 mph style! I think it’s safe to say the future is in worse shape than the Earth’s gravitational pull – heavy! Don’t pass off on this shirt. Offered in tahiti blue, charchoal, and silver I enjoy the blue option most. Visually, I enjoy the warm tones againt the cool blues. Pleasant color block shapes and bold shading in a wonderful bubble composition. Interesting selection of the artist to protray Wolverine as the comic book version, rather than the live-action Hugh Jackman. This decision lends beautifully to positioning the figure in a similar pose to Marty with his hands on his head looking down at the time.

“All in all we’re just another brick in Wall Rose“. Well, maybe that’s not the exact lyric but it fits this clever design! Something tells me these Titans wouldn’t care too much for pudding but would certainly eat their share of meat (human that is). Awesome white shirt design! While not very common, the design does a nice job of using the white background. It looks clean with thin delicate lines to represent the bricks of the wall. The warm flesh tones in contrast, appear to peak from the center. The wrinkles on the skinless Titan creates a different texture against the flat white. The use of simple perspective gives the effect that there is a Titan in the wall, behind the bricks and ready to break out from the shirt.

Shiny! Even nerdy girls can dream, right? Kaylee is a gearhead at heart but that won’t stop her from playing the part! The figure is easily recognized wearing her jumpsuit and looks ready to play dress-up. The pink dress is wonderfully detailed with many folds and creases. The figure stands in a minimal background, although enough information is given to provide reference. This nicely keeps the focal point on the figure and the dress. The artist creates visual interest by using the mirror to reveal the front of dress and Kaylee’s face.
Thank You Karen Hallion
